6. "If you're taking out a protective style and discover buildup, spray an apple cider vinegar-water mixture (mostly water) onto the area to loosen it up and prevent breakage."


7. "I love microfiber towels because, unlike the average towel, they don't cause frizz and breakage and they absorb more water, which means a shorter diffuse/blow dry time."


11. "When doing twist-outs, place a small metal clip (the ones you use to secure pin curls) at the root of each twisted section. It shortens drying time and adds lift."

13. "If your twist-out is starting to look a little old, but you're not ready to re-do it, just re-do the edges. It'll look like a fresh twist-out without all the work."

14. "If your hairstyle hurts or you notice little bumps on your hairline, it's probably too tight! Avoid this if you want to save your edges."
